RECIPE | Sausage, Red Potato, & Broccoli Bake

May 2, 2014·

Have you ever stood in front of your refrigerator just hoping that dinner makes itself? You stare at all the random food you have and you wonder, “What in the heck am I going to make out of all this?” 

That happened to me the other night… I had some of this and some of that and some more of that and some more of this and I wasn’t sure what to make with it. I didn’t want to go to the grocery store and I was missing like at least one major ingredient for every other dinner idea I had. So, I felt a wee stuck.

I decided to take inventory of what I wanted to use up: I had some sausage that was about to expire, a bag of red potatoes that needed to be used up, an almost empty bag of frozen corn, and some broccoli.

And, well, I improvised. And this is what came out and whoa my goodness it was DELICIOUS. Both John, Lilly and I loved it! Yes, Lilly loved it, too!! It was so tasty, made great leftovers, and was just such a happy dinner accident!

Next time you’re standing in front of your fridge wondering what to make, try something like this (or, try this exact recipe), and see what happens. You may just end up surprising yourself!

RECIPE | Sausage, Red Potato, & Broccoli Bake


  • 1 lb of Italian sausage links cut into rounds (I used Johnsonville mild Italian sausage)
  • About 1lb of red potatoes, quartered
  • 1-2 cups of frozen broccoli
  • 1/2-1 cup of frozen corn
  • Olive oil
  • Herbs de Provence
  • Rosemary
  • Black pepper
  • Mrs. Dash Onion & Herb seasoning


Preheat the over to 400 degrees.

Lay out aluminum foil on a large cookie sheet (make sure it is the kind of cookie / baking sheet that has sides… it can’t be flat).

In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, potatoes, corn, sausage together and coat with the olive oil. There is no exact science to how much olive oil to use… just make sure they are all evenly coated. Then top with your desired amount of seasoning. I used equal parts Herbs de Provence, Rosemary, and Mrs. Dash and then just added a little bit of black pepper.

You can really add / subtract seasonings as you so desire. My rule of thumb is to start with a little and add as you see fit.

Stir all the ingredients together in the large bowl and make sure they are evenly coated.

Then, spread the whole thing out on the cookie / baking sheet so that everything is spread out evenly. Feel free to add a little bit more seasoning once it’s all spread out flat.

Then, bake in the oven for about 30-40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Just keep an eye on it. 🙂

Serve with a biscuit, cornbread, or yeast roll! Enjoy!
